Yes, I saw that option, but *where* to apply it?
(Recall, this is also for xfce.)
The nearest I'm guessing, without digging into
internals (since I really don't care to),
is that X is spawned from somewhere inside
xinit. Which, I suppose, means there's some
environment variable which might be set to pass
these args in?
I can only assume that "default of log level 3"
is a bit.. um.. *extreme*. The uptime of my
session wasn't that long-- maybe 2 weeks?-- and
the log gained maybe 20-50 megs per day? (Based on
my estimate of watching it for half a day.)
This leads me to the ultimate question of why
a /dev/null or default-override solution should
be necessary at all. Unless there's something
very wrong and the process is screaming for
attention (which it doesn't seem to be).
